WELLSBORO — Waves of fall colors are flowing south over the next week or so, transforming Pennsylvania’s forests and hillsides into collages of reds, oranges, yellows and browns, and attracting “leaf peepers.”

The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) credits Pennsylvania’s fall foliage season with attracting more than 200 million travelers and injecting more than $40 billion into the state’s economy.
